The Final Prayer

The Final Prayer

When the sun comes tumbling down
And the days have gone stealth,

When the darkness makes you frown
And there's neither health or wealth,

When there is no one close to hold
And everyone seems fake,

When the whole world has gone cold,
And life has pulled it's brake,

When those you love forget to care
yet you feel no hurt or pain,

When there's no longer unrest or fear
Your mind used to contain,

When time becomes unjust, unfair,
What would be your earnest prayer?

In times of utter despair, we often look up to the Almighty for a solution. The poem depicts such a state of mind that has lost its emotions in affliction, and doesn't know what to ask for in supplication.

Good to get your feedback, Lorna! I totally agree with you. Times like this reminds us that we should appreciate the things we have in our lives and cherish them. Thank you, once again, for your lovely comment!

Nell Rose from England on April 08, 2020:

I think we are all praying right now. Its such a horrible time, please take care.

Lorna Lamon on April 08, 2020:

A thoughtful poem Farah. I believe that our prayers will be answered; so my prayer would be that we all learn to appreciate each other and our place in this world, because now we can see how easily these precious things can be taken from us. I enjoyed this poem.

Hello, Dr. Anupma! Yes, we are all praying that the virus gets eradicated from the face of this earth. It's a very disturbing time worldwide. Let's hope our prayers get answered. Thank you very much for your lovely words. Would love to hear more from you.

Farah N Huq (author) from Dhaka, Bangladesh on April 07, 2020:

Thank you, Mitara N, for your words of appreciation. It is at times such as this that we are forced to seek help from the Divine power! Let's hope that the virus can cause no further damage to the world.

Mitara N from South Africa on April 07, 2020:

Crazy and scary times, that we look toward higher power for intervention, removing all virus and immediate healing to the world.

Well written,

Thank you for sharing

Prayer is more a loose term for a cry for help- Absolutely! Any help and in any form! :) Thank you, Kyler, for your prompt response and opinion to the matter. :)

Kyler J Falk from Corona, CA on April 07, 2020:

Those well wishes come from those around me, and too many are willing to offer words like daggers. Yes, I'm quite predictable in my sentiments, it lets people know when they can and cannot depend upon me. Perhaps I am looking at prayer as too much of a mystical representation in this case, and prayer is more a loose term for a cry for help to the world.

Flowery wording always makes me wary, and as you understand my underlying sentiments without me expressing them, I assume you understand my wariness.

Farah N Huq (author) from Dhaka, Bangladesh on April 07, 2020:

I knew you would say that, Kyler. :) You have a very strong point there! but then again, when you feel totally powerless, it's always good to feel that Someone is watching over you and will pull you up from the dark pit you have fallen into. It is very important to be helpful to others, and at times all the help you need is some kind words and well wishes. Thank you for your appreciation! Would love to hear from you again. :)

Dr Anupma Srivastava from India on April 07, 2020:

My prayer is "World should be out from this corona and its fear."

Prayer is a medium to state one's deeper thought and desire. I completely believe PRAYERS ARE ALWAYS ANSWERED.

Enjoyed your poem, well written.

Kyler J Falk from Corona, CA on April 07, 2020:

Though I cannot appreciate the sentiment of handing one's power over to a deity, this poem was well-written and I enjoyed it fundamentally. My prayer? That people stop depending on a deity who lets this stuff happen to begin with, and spend more time helping one another in their immediate communities with more than kind words, well-wishes, and prayers.

Farah N Huq (author) from Dhaka, Bangladesh on April 07, 2020:

Thank you so much for your lovely feedback. Yes, I do agree with you. At times, it may seem it's easier to give up, specially when you feel completely drained. Submitting yourself to God makes you feel supported and strong once again, and you are ready to fight the negativities that torment you. Stay blessed, Benny. I wish to hear from you again.

Farah N Huq (author) from Dhaka, Bangladesh on April 07, 2020:

We all miss our childhood, don't we? Blessed were those days! :) I am so glad you liked it. Thank you, John! I always find your words motivational.

Alianess Benny Njuguna from Kenya on April 07, 2020:

I love the poetry. In times of despair, we turn to God because of the hopeless, frustration and the helplessness we feel. My prayer would be to enable me never to give up. Because it is easy to give up.

John Hansen from Queensland Australia on April 07, 2020:

Farah, what a good question...I think my final prayer would be to change the world (life) back to the way it was when I was a child. It may not have been perfect but it seemed that way to me.

I love you poetry, keep these fine poems coming.

Farah N Huq (author) from Dhaka, Bangladesh on April 07, 2020:

That would be a wonderful prayer! I believe praying itself is a positive step. It cleanses your heart and mind and sets you free step by step.

Thank you, Vladimir, for your lovely feeback. Would love to hear more from you. Stay blessed!

Val Karas from Canada on April 07, 2020:

Farah -- If I prayed, it would be for emotional strength to remove all such feelings and to see the brighter side of life.

But, since I hardly ever pray, I take it in my own hands, giving myself love that others failed to do -- and then I realize it's the only kind of love I may have been missing all along.

Farah N Huq (author) from Dhaka, Bangladesh on April 07, 2020:

What would you be praying for in such a state of mind?
